Posted: 28th February 2020

Brian McNeill’s album No Silence is now in stock and orders placed through this website are being despatched. The album will be officially released on 1st April. Brian will launch the album with an extensive European tour.

Stevie Palmer’s new album (untitled as yet) is now being mastered, and the mixes make it quite something, with different sounds from track to track. Stevie sang his song Black Is The Sun at the Far, Far From Ypres stage shows and his performance received much praise.

Scottish piper Eddie Seaman will record his debut album for Greentrax in the Summer. Eddie studied at The Royal Conservatoire Of Scotland and already has wide experience as a soloist and as a member of several bands.

Dr Fred Freeman is currently preparing for and will be producing a Hamish Henderson Tribute Album vol 2 for release later in the year. It will include songs by Hamish, as well as other singers with their interpretations of his songs, including John Morran (Deaf Shepherd). The first Hamish Henderson tribute album A’ The Bairns O’ Adam was released on Greentrax in 2003.

Fiona J Mackenzie - Duan Nollaig (A Gaelic Christmas)

Includes such favourites as Silent Night, Away In A Manger, In The Bleak Midwinter, Child In A Manger, We Wish You A Merry Christmas, Halleluiah (featured in the film Shrek) and more. A quite stunning album.

Keltik Elektrik – Edinburgh Hogmanay Party Mix

A best-selling Greentrax favourite, ideal for your Christmas or New Year dance party. It really grooves. This is a fun album for people who enjoy a “Celtic fling”. Was TV-advertised on its release and has achieved remarkable sales.

The Best Of Bill Barclay

This live album of Edinburgh’s own Bill Barclay includes a re-recording of the “hit single” The Twelve (Drunken) Days Of Christmas plus other songs, interspersed with Bill’s side-splitting humour. Great for Christmas and New Year parties. Was on the Bah! Humbug compilation album (now deleted).

Eric Bogle - By Request

Includes the hilarious Santa Bloody Claus, in which Eric Bogle takes a swipe at the ever-increasing commercialism of Christmas, which was previously on the Bah! Humbug album. Included on this album are No Man’s Land (aka Greenfields of France), And The Band Played Waltzing Matilda, Leaving Nancy, Now I’m Easy and more - his most requested songs.
